USA FAILS TO STOP CHEMICAL ATTACK IN SYRIA

If the Trump administration via the military and CIA had proof so quickly after the alleged chemical attack in Syria, regarding who was responsible, then that means they knew before it happened and as it was happening and did nothing to stop it by at least alerting the world what they supposedly knew was in the works.

After seeing how the military, CIA and FBI over the last few months have responded to President Trump, by trying to undermine his presidency, I wouldn’t trust the information they give him.

THE LAST OF SYRIA’S CHEMICAL WEAPONS WERE SHIPPED OUT 23 JUNE 2014

“The destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons began on the basis of several international agreements with Syria that stipulated an initial destruction deadline of 30 June 2014. The UN Security Council Resolution 2118 of 27 September 2013 required Syria to assume responsibility for and follow a timeline for the destruction of its chemical weapons and its chemical weapon production facilities. The Security Council resolution bound Syria to the implementation plan presented in a decision of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). On 23 June 2014, the last declared chemical weapons were shipped out of Syria for destruction.[1] The destruction of the most dangerous chemical weapons was performed at sea aboard the Cape Ray, a vessel of the United States Maritime Administration‘s Ready Reserve Force, crewed with U.S. civilian merchant mariners. The actual destruction operations, performed by a team of U.S. Army civilians and contractors, destroyed 600 metric tons of chemical agents in 42 days.[2]


The USA is claiming that President Assad just two days ago used chemical weapons against his own people – 4 April 2017.


President Trump had better be absolutely sure that President Assad was indeed responsible for an alleged chemical attack against civilians in Syria. A thorough investigation needs to be done. Anyone quick to make war decisions based on a video, has an agenda. Last resort is what military intervention is supposed to be.

You can’t say it looks like sarin. You need to be on the ground investigating proving what it was or what it wasn’t, and who did it or didn’t do it. How do you know what sarin looks like anyway? Have you used it recently in labs against humans to know how they look when they get poisoned?

How could the USA have proof so quickly, without an investigation? This must be taken slowly. Right now anything could have happened. A half a million people are not dead in Syria because the rebels are peaceniks. No matter who did it, somebody saw an opportunity and took it. Desperate people do desperate things – even to the extent of sacrificing their own to get attention. Wrong people get blamed for acts they didn’t commit all the time – especially during war.

Jumping the gun is not going to help anyone.

Right now it’s looking bad for the USA to be encouraging airstrikes in response to an attack against Syrian civilians in a civil war. It looks like the USA had something to do with it when they say they don’t need an investigation. Such a drastic measure requires a thorough unbiased review of all the facts – not conjecture. I don’t think the USA is capable of that, which tells you something about the state of affairs in the military and the CIA.

The last country to have possession of Syria’s chemical weapons was the USA. Better retrace your steps and check to see if all the chemicals were destroyed or if someone held some back.

Stop guessing.

BIG ON COMPLAINTS SHORT ON SOLUTIONS

‘The majority rules’ doesn’t mean the majority is right. All systems are flawed. Democracy can satisfy fifty-one percent of the people, which leaves forty-nine percent disgruntled. Out of that fifty-one percent, people still may not be satisfied within that group, since the final choice between two candidates often results in choosing the lesser of two unsuitable candidates.

That’s the price of democracy.  A raise of hands. The yeas and nays. How many for? How many against? That’s our system.

Democracy is the best system to date that we as American Missionaries work hard to export to other countries many times at the cost of life, limb and peace of mind. Democracy is the reason many immigrants risk, life, limb and peace of mind to come to America to take part in the democratic way of life, even when the outcome is not always right, and not always in their favor.

We have term limits, which is designed to fix the mistakes we as voters make. Vote them in, we don’t like their performance, vote them out.

Instead of debunking the system that is not always right, develop a better system. It’s easy to complain absent a solution.

The world is big on complaints and short on solutions.

Be big on solutions.

Our best solutions in our minds always end up in destruction mode. We think the destruction method is expedient. We’re loud, violent, won’t let up till the so and so elected official is gone, we get louder and more forceful, all-consuming of our time and energy, inviting others to the fight, then threaten if they don’t join, all the while sure, absolutely sure, that this is the only way, by legal or any other means, to destroy this elected official, make stuff up, make the populace angry as hell, shout over everybody else, put on the best all-out psycho performance to show how crazy you can really get if you don’t have your way and get this person booted out of office, you will literally blow up the planet and everything on it, knowing full well that just before you push the button or pull the switch this person will leave on their own volition and you can claim victory over running somebody out of office, the one you didn’t want, rather than wait the customary amount of time to vote out this elected official and vote in the one everybody supposedly really wants.

Who might that be? Remember Bashar Hafez al-Assad of Syria. A half million people dead, a country in ruin, a global catastrophe and he’s still standing.

Find a better way by working with what you have, until such time you can vote the people you don’t like out, or change the system requiring a larger majority than fifty-one percent, which would satisfy, at least theoretically, a greater number of voters.

America is always split fifty-fifty or thereabouts. If the bar is raised, the people will fall into line with the new requirement. The country will become sixty-one to fifty-nine. That sounds like too much of a dictatorship. Maybe we’ll all get stuck in our little box and nothing will ever get solved. That’s where we are now – stuck in our little box.

Our political system may as well be a flip of the coin with a fifty-fifty, one point over the line wins, way of deciding who rules. We’re always hearing on the news that the country is equally divided. Then change the divide and see what happens. Or not. If we can never reach more than just over the line of fifty percent in agreement or against, then we must accept our fate of always being pretty much equally divided – meaning always at odds with whatever the outcome is.

Perhaps we need to stop treating our politics like a sport, whereby there are two teams with fans on either side cheering for their team to win.

We need to find a way to satisfy more people, and stop being disgruntled just because you relish the devilish role, the feeling of adrenaline pumping blood faster than need be through your over-stretched veins, the power to spew whatever comes out must be right, cause it’s coming from you, mentality that being disgruntled provides you. It’s no fun being satisfied. You like to fight and as long as it isn’t you getting hurt, then you’ll work your mouth off to destroy the target of the day.

Develop another system, find a different way, work on a new solution to an old problem. “If you’re not part of the solution you’re part of the problem” is not a solution. It’s a lazy person’s way of passing the responsibility onto anybody they say it to. You don’t need any more bumper sticker sayings. You need real thinking, problem-solving people.

Raise the bar to sixty-one percent majority across the board. Redefine majority within a political context. That way you won’t always have half the people disgruntled. At least sixty-one percent will be satisfied.

But oh no, the minority wants to rule. Then make a better case for your plan being the plan that works for everyone – and it will become the majority. Just telling people it will work for everyone isn’t enough. Why should anyone believe you?

Too much work. I’d rather roll the dice.

Then you gambled and won, or you gambled and lost.

Don’t cry to me.

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN

Your country of origin is where you were born not the group you were born into.

A group is not a country. An individual is not a country.

However, Jews and Muslims want the world to accept that their respective countries of origin are themselves, no matter where they were actually born.

I’m a Muslim first. I’m a Jew first. Their ideology is them. It can exist in all nations, all regions, any place on earth as long as they populate those places.

Earth is their country of origin. So theoretically, one Muslim or one Jew on earth makes it theirs. Who came first the Muslim or the Jew? I don’t have a clue, and frankly I don’t want a clue.

The problem arising from two groups claiming ownership of a planet is who will ultimately gain control of that planet?

No other groups have yet to claim earth as their country of origin based on an ideology that makes the individual and group a country, whereby any place they populate becomes theirs by their mere presence in it.

The Jews in some way are trying to create a country of origin, as fake as it may be, so that Jews worldwide can come home to an Israeli Mecca six times a year. The issue here would be that Mecca is the birthplace of both the Prophet Muhammad and the religion he founded. Israel only has Jesus, which could make sense, Jerusalem and the religion he founded.

But Jews deny Jesus any special accolades of that nature, so that leaves the Jews without an Internationally recognized place where Jews could pray to six times a day, while adhering to the principles set forth by Jesus? Set forth by whom?

Oh it’s complicated they always say. You wouldn’t understand it. It always is complicated when trying to pull the hood over your own lie.

There’s always a fifth wheel isn’t there? Or, two’s company, three’s a crowd?

So in comes Christianity. I can see why they want Jesus and Jerusalem for themselves. But they don’t. They want Jews to have it. That defies any coherent explanation, except the ‘it’s too complicated’ one.

David. Star of David isn’t a place. It’s a symbol of connectivity between internal and external aspects of God, Torah and Israel – meaning pretty much that it was all in the mind, not based on a person that could be raised up as their prophet and originator of their religion. Unless of course they want to say that King David is their leader and prophet, but Jews don’t want prophets.

The Muslims have Mecca, which means their country of origin should be Saudi Arabia. But Muslims don’t reference Saudi Arabia when they reference Mecca. The country doesn’t matter. It’s all in the mind. It’s all in the ideology.

Israel is the people, the law, the country the world hasn’t recognized yet.

Islam is the people, the law, the planet.

Who is going to win?

CHINESE NOT CHINA

My only focus now is Chinese. Not China. Chinese.

I know all I need to know about you. Your history is irrelevant to me. It’s too long. Easy to get lost in long history.

I know your weakness. I know your strength. Your weakness and strength are equal, not the same.

I know you’re losing time so try to catch up too fast. I’m watching you as you follow yourself into your own nightmare wanting to be brave.

Punishment makes the punisher stronger, then weaker, then weakest, then weaker than the punished, till the punished rise to defeat the punisher with punishment.

Again the cycle continues.

Chinese tired and sick of body and mind from punisher, punished, punishment. All the time punish.

Chinese want no more. Ah peace. Yes. Punishment no. Punishment ah bring no peace only sorrow.

The time for talking is over. China thinks it just began. That’s how slow China is. That’s China’s weakness.

China look stupid because China slow. Enemy throw up hands. We get our China way.

No. Negotiation is over. You had your way too long. It didn’t work. Now it’s our way.

China too long. Now okay. We talk.

No, go home. Make Chinese people happy. No punishment. The door will open on its own.

China open now.

No. China’s not open. Chinese not happy yet.

Will be happy if China open.

Say who?

China.

Wrong answer.

China still too long?

Yes.

Next time you knock China door no open.

China still punisher.

Ops. Okay, okay. I see. Reward better than punishment.

No punishment is the reward. Chinese must work for everything else the same as everybody else.

What China Strength?

Persistence.

THE NEW HIGH MEANS LOWER THAN LOW

I keep hearing people in government positions as well as in the general populace justify their own bad behavior by Donald’s Trump behavior.

“Well, look what Trump did?” is their response when called out on their own bad behavior as if his behavior justified theirs.

Somebody else’s bad behavior does not justify yours. Where does that even come from?

When he went low you didn’t go high, you went lower.

Setting The Record Straight: IRISH: THE FORGOTTEN WHITE SLAVES

They came as slaves: human cargo transported on British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children.

Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. Some were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives.

We don’t really need to go through all of the gory details, do we? We know all too well the atrocities of the African slave trade.

But are we talking about African slavery? King James VI and Charles I also led a continued effort to enslave the Irish. Britain’s Oliver Cromwell furthered this practice of dehumanizing one’s next door neighbor.

The Irish slave trade began when James VI sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies.

By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves…

If you say yes, I know you’re lying.

You see, hear and feel only yourself. But yourself isn’t getting you what you want as quickly as you want it.

So you tell everybody else they had better see, hear and feel you or you’ll destroy them.

That’s the epitome of stupidity right there.

PAL-ISR = 50/50 or PALIS (that’s the deal)

Memo to President Donald J. Trump

[50/50]

1A – Borders Currently Confirmed. The borders of Palestine and Israel are all the currently confirmed borders of all surrounding existing countries, such as Egypt, Jordan etc. plus the sea and air-space as recognized by those nations (according to the United Nation’s rules and regulations, applying one to all recognized nations). Those are the borders of Palestine and Israel.

2B – Dividing The Land. Fifty-fifty. Contiguous. The history no longer matters. The group, all the groups, no longer matter. The individual and the masses are and will be the only focus. All land not a part of any surrounding country gets divided fifty-fifty.

3C – The Right Of Return. Every refugee or family or friends of refugees are allowed to return to any place inside those currently confirmed borders, but they need to pay their own way, and pay to rent a dwelling or purchase a piece of land and/or dwelling at fair market prices determined by the governing forces of Palestine and Israel.

Palestine decides how many states they want under the Federal umbrella of Palestine (one or more). Each state must be contiguous.

4D – Capital. Jerusalem belongs to the world. The world owns Jerusalem. A non-military zone. The land of Jerusalem is owned separately by an International Assembly of Cultural Peoples, for the Advancement of the Five Principles.  Democratically elected members of the International Assembly will govern Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is nobody’s capital city. Tel Aviv can move anywhere within it’s fifty percent borders. Palestine can make their capital anywhere within it’s fifty percent borders.

Now you have two countries living side by side, each with a capital city, each with their own governments, each with air and sea space that they control as facilitators of commerce. And the world owns Jerusalem.

OR…

[PALIS]

Sounds like Paris. Implies something royal, like a palace. Palestine and Israel. The Jews rejected Ispal, so now they get placed on the other end, instead of at the beginning. Each get four letters and share the fifth: ‘P’ = power. If you want me to pursue this further I will, and you know who I’m talking to. Though I think it’s best that we don’t. All right you asked for it.  I know you’re going to point out that Palestine has more letters, which puts you at a disadvantage. Though Israel minus the R is contained in Palestine, and Palestine is contained in Israel minus the PETN. ‘E’ is repeated. ‘I’ comes before ‘P’ so that should even out the extra letters in Palestine. Okay, so 9 plus 6 equals 15, an odd number, but that’s if you count ‘E’ twice. If you leave it out, that makes equal for both with nothing to share. Okay count it twice. Then, that’s 7 for each of you with the 15th shared. That’s enough!! This little game of yours is over.

Face it, conditions on the ground are not your obstacle to resolution. The obsessive compulsive component of your personalities is all that stops you. The world is going to think you all insane with all this silliness. For years the right of return was the last problem under consideration. We make it the first. Times have changed. Last comes first.  Just as you couldn’t form a new government in Germany while the Jews remained in concentration camps around Europe, you can’t form a new Palestinian/Israeli State while Palestinians remain in Camp Gaza and Camp West Bank. The multitude of Palestinians incarcerated in concentration camps in Gaza and the West Bank are to be released, not in ten or twenty years, but NOW.

You were rescued from concentration camps. Now it’s time to dismantle your own. It’s disgusting how you repeated your own history by making nobody forget, lest it happen again, all the while you were doing it. You did it. Face it. Now change it before a group of nations similar to those who freed you, decide to free the enslaved Palestinians.

Now. 

Jerusalem becomes a state, like Vatican City, governed by representatives from all groups, somewhat like the United Nations. It will become an International gathering place. Everything outside of Jerusalem will exist as one state, one nation called Palis. All peoples will work together for a common goal of peace and prosperity for all. All religions and ethnic groups will be respected and honored, as Palis becomes an example to the rest of the world, a blueprint for integration and positive, prosperous change–a melting pot that turns away no one.

I can see Palis as the capital of the United Middle East. What a sight! Look what they’re doing in Dubais on a piece of land the size of Rhode Island.

The Jews were rejected, the Palestinians rejected. You do have something in common. Put the brakes on the repetitive chatter in your minds my little Palis babies, and get your little buzz butts busy planning this spectacular Oasis. “You can do it. I know you can.” What? You can’t change the name? Since when, my little Maccabees?

It’s time for the Maccabees to come out of the closet. Look Maccabees up in the bible if you don’t know what it means. They occupy a whole section. There’s a reason why Italian Jews look different from English Jews, Indian Jews, African Jews and Danish Jews. It’s not only because they were born in their respective countries, it’s because they really are part Italian, English, Indian, African and Danish.

Most of us don’t know that at some point along the way we have some Jew in us. Sorry to burst your pure race minority bubble scam, but it’s time to drop that poor us, tiny little group of persecuted people, sympathy card that you use as your calling card in the pursuit of all you covet.

TRUMP ON TORTURE

TRUMP ON TORTURE

Hey, I’ve got an idea.

Why not have one of Donald Trump’s sons undergo what is currently not considered torture, but still practiced at black sites – black prisons – CIA holding companies|facilities around the world?

The real deal. Stress positions, sensory deprivation, loud noises, temperature extremes, sexual humiliation, the whole nine yards. Then have him report back to father on what he thinks torture is and isn’t.

You don’t have to do the water-boarding, just all the other stuff.

I get Trump. He doesn’t want to show his cards to the enemy. He’s not going to reinstate torture. He’s trying to get a rise out of somebody.

Actually, the definition of torture as it currently exists, excludes a lot of stuff I would regard as torture. It’s a narrow definition.

Trump and Clinton both need to read up on what the USA considers torture – in detail. It’s not enough for Clinton to criticize Trump for saying he would bring back torture, when the USA still tortures.

You can’t say that we don’t torture, like Obama repeatedly does, when we do torture.

It’s like Obama saying he closed Guantanamo Bay prison, when he didn’t. It has never been closed, so he didn’t close it, and neither did anybody else. Yet he said he closed it. In his mind, he thinks he closed it, because he signed an executive order to explore lawful options.

That’s not the same as closing anything. Actually Trump uses the same technique that Obama uses – beating around the bush.

Executive Order 13493 of January 22, 2009

(e) Mission. The mission of the Special Task Force shall be to conduct a comprehensive review of the lawful options available to the Federal Government with respect to the apprehension, detention, trial, transfer, release, or other disposition of individuals captured or apprehended in connection with armed conflicts and counterterrorism operations, and to identify such options as are consistent with the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States and the interests of justice.

IN AMERICA…

President Obama needs to stop using his power and influence as president to tell all of America how to vote. It’s dictatorial and controlling.

Obama who talks freely about the doom and gloom perception of America espoused by Donald Trump is engaging in the same doom and gloom strategy by fear mongering to voters about Trump’s mental state. Not fit to run, not fit to be president, says who in a free and open democratic society? Anybody can grow up to be president, remember?

Obama had eight years to make a difference. Better that he spend the remainder of his last term making up for lost time, instead of vicariously running for president again – this time against Donald Trump.

Keep your bad blood to yourself. It’s ugly to see you stoop –  as POTUS – just to get even. We need a president now. Be that person and stop the insanity with Trump. People are beginning to see how easily Trump gets under your self-professed thick skin and the thick skin of Hillary Clinton.

What’s most offensive is the use of a Muslim family as a recruitment tool for other Muslims wanting to martyr themselves – why not for us rather than against us?

At the DNC a father lamented that had Donald Trump been president, his son could not have martyred himself as a human shield to save other soldiers, since they wouldn’t have been in the USA.

I would have preferred a more antiwar sentiment, seeking peace over sacrifice. Instead we got a Pakistani family whose mission it was to take down a major USA political candidate, before the entire world, with no plan except the destruction of a person. How rude.

In America anybody can grow up to be president or choose to martyr themselves in defense of the nation. One isn’t any more or less worthy than the other.

Why ‘white trash’ Americans are flocking to Donald Trump

One time when J.D.’s mom took exception to something the boy said in the car, she hit the accelerator and sped up to 100 miles per hour, screaming that she was going to kill them both. When he jumped in the backseat hoping to protect himself from the impact, he recalls, she instead pulled the car over “to beat the s- -t out of me.” The evening concluded with Mom being hauled away in a police car.

One of J.D.’s stepdads, Bob, though kindhearted, had a bad case of “Mountain Dew mouth.” Half his teeth had fallen out, the other half were black, brown and misshapen.

J.D. and his people are called rednecks, white trash, hillbillies. But Vance made it out of the holler, way out. The Marines led him to Ohio State, then Yale Law School and finally a job as a principal at a Silicon Valley investment firm. Looking back on his youth, and all he fled, yields a frank, unsentimental, harrowing memoir, “Hillbilly Elegy.” It’s a superb book given an extra layer of importance by its political reverberations: When Vance returns home these days, he sees yard after yard festooned with Trump signs.

Nancy Pelosi says blue-collar white men vote “against their own economic interests” because of guns, gays and God, “God being the woman’s right to choose.” The Washington Post noted that this group does care about gun rights more than the average voter but it’s a myth that their views on gays and God differ much from everyone else’s, and Pelosi’s regal dismissal of the bitter clingers is not only too reductive, it’s an attitude that drives voters away from the Democratic Party…

Finish reading: Why ‘white trash’ Americans are flocking to Donald Trump – Kyle Smith | New York Post


HWH Comment: This white guy Kyle Smith may think it’s okay to call poor white people white trash, but this poor white person thinks he’s a racist for doing it. Just because hillbillies call themselves names, doesn’t make it alright for everybody else to do the same. Blacks call themselves names too. He could easily have said ‘niggers’ are flocking to Hillary Clinton, but he didn’t and won’t because he’d be out of a job and maybe a city or two might be burned to the ground as a result, maybe even another cop sacrificed would be on the menu.

Kyle Smith likes to shock people, especially when he knows there won’t be any adverse consequences and especially because the author of the book uses the term, but there is such a thing as decency in writing, and responsibility in reporting  on what somebody else has written in a tasteful, non-offensive way.

Women don’t burn cities either when you call them ‘cunts’, but it’s a disparaging term and not many writers would use it. That Kyle Smith thinks it’s okay to disparage anyone through the written word, shows he’s not much of a writer or a communicator when he has to resort to abuse to shock somebody into reading one of his articles.

Kyle Smith knows nothing about tasteful or communicating effectively.

Yeah, niggers are flocking to Hillary Clinton and white trash to Donald Trump. The word trash denotes inhumane. It’s something you dump, something you throw away as worthless. There’s nothing about nigger or even kike that denotes or even connotes the same worthlessness as trash. Trash is by far the worst. The term white trash is racist by definition. There is nothing good nor useful about that term.

Hillbilly is different unless used in a disparaging way.

Kyle Smith knew that as he wrote this trashy piece of worthless writing, as if he was writing a book review – using a review format to cover for his slick and slimy need to disparage poor white people – that served only to stink up the New York Post.

And shame on J.D. Vance for stereotyping his own people in such a disparaging way. He may claim that he’s just being honest and I will argue that many a people who claim honesty aren’t telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth. They tell a portion of it, leaving out the honest parts that would complete the picture or story. Maybe you all should note that there are lots of poor white people who don’t live in the hills of any state. And there’s more that defines a person than the number of teeth they have.

When I first came to Cleveland I was called white trash by an irate black woman, shaking her finger in my face after I caught her stealing. I did not think it was okay, nor did I take it lightly.

For Kyle Smith to put the term in the title was over the top. To use apostrophes instead of quotes was misleading – whose quote was it anyway? To use it in the same sentence as Donald Trump was passive-aggressive writing meant to influence and harm, not enlighten, suggesting that Donald Trump was white trash via association with those who support him – another bias.

Find a new profession, Kyle Smith.

Safe GOP convention boosts Cleveland’s image to the world

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland’s safe and successful turn as host of the Republican National Convention has helped establish it as an ideal location for large events but also a city that people will consider when deciding where to live and do business, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson said Friday.

July 22, 2016
“It really puts us in a different light with a different image,” the mayor said at a news briefing. Police reported a total of 24 arrests during the four-day convention that ended Thursday night, a surprisingly low number that can be attributed to a massive police presence and to safety concerns that discouraged protesters and visitors from coming to Cleveland this week…

HWH Comment: It’s unfortunate that we live in a time where it takes thousands of law enforcement personnel and military in addition to extreme barricades and procedures and millions upon millions of dollars to keep people safe during a political convention that promised to attract thousands of violent protestors.

That it costs so much in time, money and services to keep Cleveland from being burned to the ground does not make me feel secure. It only proves the volatile time we live in whereby these measures are needed to keep the peace.

Where is the discipline by those who would do humanity harm to advance their cause in the name of their lives mattering more than yours, when they need the presence of a literal army to prevent them from acting on their annihilist urges?

PRESIDENT OBAMA FEARS HIS OWN PEOPLE

White Lives Do Matter, Black people. Get used to it. We care about you, that means you need to care about us.

Appropriation of Black culture? How about that cell phone you’re using or those shoes you’re wearing or the schools you go to or the jobs you get through Affirmative Action? How about that gun you carry? Who made that? How about the laws passed that enable you to carry a gun? Who got those passed?

No Appropriation of White culture going on there? You can’t own a word. You can’t own a culture. You can’t own a hair style. You can’t own knowledge and experience. You can’t own your family nor your church. You can only own you.

This isn’t Africa. This is the United States of America. You can’t corral people into a barn, lock the door and set the barn on fire every time you get “upset”.

Further the cause of civilization and the entire world won’t have to fear you. Right now they do, and rightly so.

Black Lives Matter became a terrorist organization the minute they marched in front of the world screaming “death to cops”. Barbecued is how they want them.

The massacre of those five police officers was a terrorist plot and action, and continues to be condoned by Black Lives Matter and most American Blacks.

The fact that President Obama and his administration dismissed it as a crime committed by a demented person who was just upset doesn’t change the reality of what occurred. Obama practically justified the retaliation part, making his eulogy for five White police officers, assassinated because they were White, a political speech for Black Lives Matter. The toughest he could get was, ‘hey if you engage in actions like these, it won’t help the cause.’

President Obama still can’t say that he’s half White. He knows the rampant racism in the hearts and minds of his Black people. He knows that they would turn on him in an instant and bad things could happen. So he says he has a White mother instead. Poor Mom. All her sacrifices and that’s how she gets treated by her son who became President of the United States, who  shouldn’t be fearing anybody, not with all that power.

That shows you his own personal lack of courage. He fears his own people. So why should White people not fear his people?

He tells us not to fear them, then why does he?

THE BIRTHING OF DONALD TRUMP

The Democratic Party presents to the world their own Donald Trump.

Elizabeth Warren took center stage today rousing the crowd at a Hillary Clinton rally to the tune of Donald Trump on steroids. Rock a bye Baby with an AK-47 delivery system.

The only difference between Warren and Trump is that Warren has the details – and she spit them out – rapid fire style – as the crowd went wild.

I’ve never heard cheers for Hillary Clinton like I heard after Elizabeth Warren spoke. That’s what the democrats needed, wanted, all along – their own Donald Trump.

If Hillary Clinton doesn’t pick Warren as her running mate, her Vice President, then Hillary deserves to lose.

And if Warren doesn’t accept, then they both deserve to lose.

Donald Trump Thinks Too Much…

…about punching people. A punch is a punch – doesn’t matter who is perceived as punching first.

You never start it do you? Everybody always starts it first.

There’s something called provocation – used to incite someone to punch you, so you can legally/ethically/as a right of responsibility to defend your name and reputation, punch them back. So essentially, you punch first. Provocation is the first punch. In response, they punch you like you wanted them to do, then you punch again. Counterpunch you call it.

You started it, you finished it.

You enjoy punching people. That’s not a good processing tool. Eventually you’re going to provoke the wrong person – someone who doesn’t roll with the punches.

It’s probably not a good idea to keep talking about punching anybody. The fact that you consider yourself a second responder, thus the victim, doesn’t change the violent message, nor does it send a positive message to the kids of the world.

You don’t solve problems by punching people. You solve problems by talking with people.

HILLARY’S WEAKNESS

Unless Hillary Clinton can express an actual original thought, instead of espousing the ideologies and methodologies of other so-called experts, she will never get my vote. The president of the United States and the leader of the world needs to be able to figure stuff out on her own. Everything she says, I’ve heard before from other people – long ago. When is she going to run on her own ideas?

Frankly, I don’t think she’s capable of forming her own opinions. She has a skill. She looks at everybody’s ideas, then chooses the one she agrees with and runs with it. We need someone who sees what others don’t yet see. That’s a sign of a progressive leader.

Hillary Clinton does not have that particular talent.

Lots of people have the ability to memorize lots of data. That does not make them a problem solver.

Hillary Clinton lectures White people to feel the pain and experience of Black people in America, telling them to recognize their privilege as White people and to show humility. She does not say to Blacks to feel the pain and experience of White people.

Yet, when it comes to Israel and the Palestinians, it’s all about feeling the pain of the White oppressor, Israel. She doesn’t recognize the occupation. She doesn’t realize that the stealing of other people’s land is wrong.

Hillary Clinton speaks about equality, but doesn’t speak it equally, because in her mind the issues are not equal.

The issues are always equal to all people.

I say, that you must first think of all people as equally worthy, before you can move to pass legislation that confirms that equality.

Palestinians are equal to Israelis. Period.

Whites and Blacks are equal. Period.

You go from there to change the world. You don’t take sides, making White people pay for crimes they didn’t commit. Or, in the case of the Israelis, making the oppressors the heroes of apartheid. You don’t make the survivors of the holocaust, no matter where it happens, the villians.

She mixed it all up, because she couldn’t form an opinion of her own. She speaks everybody else’s words in every situation and gets lost in the web of their deceit.

It’s all the White people’s fault in America. It’s the fault of those oppressed by White people in Palestine/Israel.

No. She does not have my vote. What is right for one must be right for all. Hillary Clinton is essentially Donald Trump.

That is her weakness.

THE WALL IS IRRELEVANT

The only reason the political establishment doesn’t want a wall along the border with Mexico is because when the jobs come back from China, the USA will need a slave labor force from South America to fill those jobs – according to Donald Trump’s real plan that he doesn’t let you see, because you’ve got gold in your eyes, that the magician put there. He knows he won’t build that wall. Otherwise he would have already done it.

Why do you think there are eleven million illegal immigrants already in the USA? That didn’t happen overnight. Wealthy people and businesses wanted cheap labor. Now they go into countries that have fewer regulations, and get their cheap labor there.

Undocumented with no path to citizenship means nobody knows they’re here, so we can pay them as little as we want.

How is it that we know there are eleven million, if nobody knows who or where they are or whom they work for?

Big business caused this problem, let them solve it. Or tell congress to close the back door to businesses that promote slavery in the USA.

Let any one of these wealthy people try to raise a family on minimum wage, or even just themselves. Try living on minimum wage for three months. See if you can afford health insurance, clothes, a car to go to work, food, furniture, an education. You can’t keep expecting ten people to live in one small house.

Drugs will get into the USA with or without a wall. Drugs get into prisons. Prisons have many walls and cages.

Why do you think Mexico doesn’t want a wall? Because they want their poor people, undereducated people, criminals, out of their country. When illegal immigrants funnel money back into Mexico to their families, then so much the better for Mexico. It means the Mexican government doesn’t have to raise their own standard of living.

Even if the USA paid for the wall, the Mexican government still wouldn’t want it.

What, Mexico is too poor to build their own factories? China is too poor to build their own factories? India? The Philippines? USA businesses need to go into their countries and do it for them?

You can’t fit all the poor people of the world into the USA. Our land mass couldn’t sustain it. We can’t afford to fix our own infrastructure now. Contaminated water is a problem in the USA now. What’s Obama and congress doing about it? Nothing of substance. It’s up to the states – you know, those 50 individual, sovereign nations under the umbrella of the Federal government, that want fewer regulations.

So where does that leave the populace?

Somebody is telling a big, fat, convoluted, complicated lie with layer upon layer of deception. Why aren’t we hearing from the businesses that outsource? Because they don’t have to talk to the American people they hurt. They talk through the back door of congress. Your elected officials are the middle people in all these back door deals, and they’re not talking to you either.

The wall is irrelevant.

Stop with the dog analogies.

“He chokes like a dog?”

Leave the dog out. The dog did nothing to you.

Everybody loves their dog family members. You’re alienating all those people, by insulting their family.

You’re uncle Donald to them now. Act it and say it.

Many dogs in the USA and worldwide are horribly abused. Say you’re going to do something for their rights too!

Laws are changing and people are getting jail time for abuse.

Marco Rubio Is Not An Honest Broker

In the last Republican debate, Marco Rubio blasted Donald Trump for not taking the side of Israel over the Palestinians in what could be a future negotiation between those two parties, that Donald Trump, if president, would reside over.

Marco Rubio’s position was that because Israel is our friend and ally, that essentially Israel should get ninety percent of the pie – going in, as a silent precondition. And then they’d haggle over the other ten percent, with again Israel taking the greater portion of the ten percent. That was the gist of it.

To Israel: Hey, don’t worry, I’ve got your back. I’ll make sure they get squat.

At that point, the Israeli leader would generously hand over a few trinkets not in the deal to sweeten the deal and all will be happy.

Yeah, maybe in Rubio’s la-la land mind.

There can be no favoritism when one person or one entity, claiming to be an honest broker in whom both sides can trust, negotiates in the best interest of both parties.

It has to be in the best interest of both parties absent punishment for past deeds or speech directed at either party by the opposing party.

Otherwise you’re not the so-called honest broker you claim to be and you have no business negotiating except on behalf of one faction. In that scenario, there’s only one faction sitting at the table. That’s been the problem since the beginning. All the so-called honest brokers were not so honest. They all gave Israel the upper hand. That’s why there was never a viable deal that was going to happen. Israel and their negotiators made sure of that. Then they blamed the Palestinians for leaving the table, when their intent was to make them walk away in the first place.

Israel wants only one deal – their deal. When they promise to give something up, you can be sure that they designed specific areas in advance – over the years – to offer as tokens to the Palestinians. The settlers in those designated areas will make a big noise, as if they were being driven from their God-given homes supported by the bible-document, when they were paid to settle for that purpose to begin with. All done to make Israelis look like they’re making painful sacrifices.

Marco Rubio has never negotiated anything of import that could prepare him for the presidency.

Hillary Clinton already had her shot as Secretary of State and missed.

Bernie Sanders couldn’t negotiate his way out of a paper bag.

Ted Cruz goes in as Czar, and sure the Russian Jews in Israel like that, since many of them took Palestinian land under Ariel Sharon and want to keep it, but Cruz might not have the stomach to defy those who steal land, who might be willing to die to keep that land. (That’s what we did to the American Indian.)

So as an easy way out, he’ll rely on the bible-document as his main witness and proof of ownership. God said the land belonged to the Jews and so it belongs to the Jews, and so it is decided. Yeah, he would definitely use the bible-document approach.

That would be a national security risk for the USA – settlers in Israel with USA connections wanting to teach a lesson to Americans about land rights. Evangelicals would probably get on board.

Right now, since the issues all surround real estate, Donald Trump – out of all the other candidates for president – has the best chance of negotiating a fair deal – honest or not.

White People Now Have A Leader

Did Rahm Emmanuel, Mayor of Chicago, drop the security ball at Donald Trump’s rally in Chicago?

A while back, Doctor’s Without Borders operating in Syria decided not to give their location coordinates to the Syrian government or the United Nations, because they superstitiously thought that by doing so it would make them a target. The clinic/hospital was hit with a bomb and people died.

It should not have been Donald Trump’s decision to cancel the rally – if that’s what actually happened. Donald Trump knows nothing about security. Yet, if he’s having a rally, and if escalating violence at his rallies has already been demonstrated – as in Fayetteville, N.C. two days prior – then my question is where were the city security planners whose responsibility it is to make safe the places where people gather to protest – in advance of the event?

Just the other day in Anaheim, California violence erupted at a KKK rally, and the same thing happened. The police didn’t show up till after violence broke out. In other words, no pre-planning by security.

How could anyone think that in today’s tense racial climate that all will go well, especially in Chicago, where violent protests have become common? What happened to the pre-planning of security at these events? They only plan where Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street show up? Well, guess what? They showed up. How could this not be predicted by security experts?

Donald Trump shouldn’t have had to cancel the rally. The area should have been made safe prior to the rally. I think the city didn’t want to pay for it. Donald Trump has security, let him pay for it. Well, it’s not really about Donald Trump, it’s about the people who gather to see him and their protection. Any where in the world where a crowd gathers, there is an issue of crowd control, especially when passions run high, where it takes only one person to ignite the crowd into chaos.

You can’t blame Donald Trump for the violence any more than you can blame Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders when their own supporters cause some of the disruption. But they’re both capitalizing on it.

Donald Trump is energizing America and maybe the world. White people in America – many poorer Americans and many not so poor – have been told to take it on the chin (endure or accept misfortune courageously or stoically) for decades when American Blacks rose up and burned cities. They were told to stand down, while they watched Blacks on television screaming in white people’s faces, spitting on white people, humiliating them on the streets where they live, chanting death to cops in America.

Donald Trump is the White person’s Al Sharpton – Jesse Jackson. Now it’s time for the White person to punch back. They want to be heard. All we ever heard from Black Lives Matter is their side. There was never a conversation. Black people got on T.V. spewed their hatred and prejudice against all White people on every talk show, month after month, but there was no counter argument from White people – only the news people who gave Blacks space to vent. But only the Blacks vented.

Any White person who vents about Black people is labeled a racist. That’s not a conversation.

There’s no equivalent to the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) for poorer Whites in America. There never has been, and there’s a lot of them. We hear Blacks wanting reparations. They got their reparations through prejudicial job placement – curing a prejudice with a prejudice – for decades. When funds get allocated for services, the minorities get them first, because they squawk the loudest, always with the threat of the group rising up as their back up plan if they don’t get what they want.

White people don’t have a group. For Blacks to think that all Whites are privileged is a glaring prejudice in itself. Each White person stands alone. That’s how we’re raised – rich or poor. So we’re going to see more Whites popping, individually. Be prepared.

Their jobs aren’t only going abroad, they see illegal persons and Blacks taking jobs as a continued, never-ending part of Affirmative Action.

The government keeps saying that White people don’t want those jobs. Well, the Donald Trumps, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clintons, the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons of the world don’t, but many poorer Whites or middle Whites do – and when they get beat out of a job by someone not as qualified, or just because someone is Black or Hispanic, they don’t like it. Nobody would. Don’t tell them to keep sucking it up.

Anybody against Affirmative Action is a racist. White America is getting sick and tired of being called names that don’t fit. They’re angry at being blamed for slavery. They’re angry at not being heard – by their voice being left out of the conversation and replaced with some news hack who is told what to say and when to say it, supposedly on behalf of all White people.

It seems that freedom speech rights are only for those whom we fear. Maybe White people are finally losing their fear of anyone who oppresses them. Maybe they’re not going to stand down any more. Maybe they’ll stand up – for themselves. Maybe they’re tired of rolling with the punches. Maybe it’s their time to punch back.

White people now have a leader – for better or worse in Donald Trump. Let us see if he does a better job than both Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

Regardless if it may be short-lived, Donald Trump opened a collective wound in White America.

OBAMA – TRUMP NOT THAT FAR APART

President Obama has already deported over 2.5 million illegal persons originally from South America – often separating families, that few in the populace even heard about till Donald Trump started talking about deporting 11 million persons currently residing in the USA illegally.

Even if Donald Trump wanted to actually deport 11 million people, which he doesn’t really, it doesn’t sound like that much of a stretch, given that 2.5 million persons have already been deported without much noise about it.

Sounds by the absence of noise that it went pretty smoothly.

I say, if you get convicted of a crime, and are sentenced to jail time, then you already signed your deportation papers along with those of your immediate family members.

If someone is poor in South America, chances are they’ll be poor here too. So what’s the difference? Some come here poor and raise themselves up, others don’t. Hey, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere in South America, because of all the corruption. But when you come here with that same corrupt mindset, you’re spreading a bad seed into the communities of otherwise law-abiding immigrants. Those communities don’t want it – that’s what they fled, only to discover that it sneaked in with them. Ouch.

Latino/Hispanic men pride themselves on being the heads of the families. Then take care of your families in a respectful way. Our streets are not lined with gold.

Empty the jails of people who come here illegally with the intent of committing crimes and getting away with it.

On the other hand, the USA has to stop using Israeli models to manage minorities here. It didn’t work with the Palestinians and it won’t work here with American Blacks and South Americans. Containment camps? In the USA? What is it about a mother and/or father who would send their little children on a journey to the USA alone? To find a better life? No. Better to die on the streets in America, than to die on the streets of their communities in South America?

Desperation? Despair? What happened to the ingenuity that they claim to have once they get to the USA? They didn’t have it in their own communities back home? Ingenuity doesn’t come from a community, it comes from the individual human spirit. America seems like an easy – though always difficult – way out.

I’d rather keep the family whole and commit to surviving and thriving together as a family in my community, no matter how corrupt. If they can do it here, they can do it there. Hispanics/Latinos are politically-minded people. Those oppressed often are. Use those acquired skills to fight corruption where you live.

DOES DONALD TRUMP REALLY HAVE A GREAT MEMORY?

If so, he hasn’t demonstrated it yet.

Donald Trump, Republican presidential hopeful, often brags about his great memory.

He does appear to have a good memory for a multitude of impressions of past events, but we all have that.

What he appears to lack is a good memory for detail.

Along with the lack of detail is his penchant for repeating himself. Were he any other 69 year old person, those witnessing both in him would worry he had early onset Alzheimer’s Disease.

It could be that he’s intellectually lazy. Although by his own accounts he is an avid reader and viewer of the news, he rarely gets it right. He gets an impression, then moves on without intellectually examining further what he sees and reads. He goes with his gut and seemingly only his gut. The news media rarely gets it right Donald.

I don’t care what his IQ was or where he went to school or even what his grades were way back when or whether he filed for bankruptcy. What I care about is his ability to solve problems beyond the next money deal Now. Although money makes the world go around, without consideration for the people – the workers – who make that happen, it’s going to be more of the same: The rich will continue on their present path of securing more money, thus more power, while those who make the money for them stay impoverished.

He doesn’t have to give the details of his plans for the future of this country and the world, since details change once in office and one is confronted with the actual situations on the ground. What he does need to demonstrate – beyond all the great people he’s going to employ to get the job done his way – is that he has what it intellectually takes to lead those he employs.

It appears now that once he gets into office he’s going to need an interpreter in order to communicate effectively to all those great people he keeps referring to.

If being a billionaire qualifies someone to become the leader of the world, then I’m worried. He didn’t become a billionaire by helping 90% of the population anywhere in the world. Neither did any billionaire. They become rich on the backs of the populace – only because there are so many of us.

One could say he’s quirky. Okay, so he’s quirky. All dictators are. They originally all communicate the same thing to the populace. They want to lift you up – everyone. But they never do. They garner more and more power till eventually the populace wakes up and overthrows them.

I imagine Donald Trump walking out onto a stage adorned with a red velvet cape – King’s cape – and throwing it out to the adoring crowd for someone, some lucky person, to catch. One person will cherish that cape forever, but that’s all they’ll get, and all the onlookers will get – from this King.

That vision could be all wrong. What may not be wrong is the constant repeating of himself and the poor detail component of memory that he exhibits, possibly signaling a deeper problem within his brain.

Maybe he’s sleep deprived. Maybe not.

His other more disturbing ‘penchant’ for getting back at people who criticize him probably has given all current and future world leaders the jitters. I don’t know if that’s such a good idea. People act erratically when they get the jitters.

Frankly, I’m tiring of Donald Trump. Where once I jumped out of my office chair to go to the television when I heard his voice, I still jump, but after the first few sentences I turn the television to music and return to the office. Nothing new there.

Too much sizzle makes one think that’s all he’s got. Even on Madison Avenue that doesn’t work long term.

Most people when they get into the Presidential chair, realize the bubble that chair put them into. Donald Trump is already in that bubble.

He keeps saying he loves everybody. Then stop hating those who criticize you. They have a right to criticize you. Once in office, the criticism gets much worse. Can you handle that?

THE 7 BOY REPUBLICAN DEBATE

1-28-2016

Contrary to the after-the-debate analysis by well-known pundits on television, this debate was anything but boring.

Although Donald Trump was MIA, the 7 boy line up, channeled Donald Trump’s energy and style with remarkable ease – which proves they all, individually and collectively, are a quick study, which proves further that they all can act.

One over-riding impression, individually and collectively, of all boys standing on the stage begging to be president of the world was a profound absence of sincerity, an over-abundance of hypocrisy and a stunning ignorance of reality.

Sorry boys. You just didn’t deliver.

WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT?

President Obama at CNN’s Town Hall Meeting on Guns In America

Well done. Rational. Middle of the road. One size fits all. Conservative approach to reducing gun crimes in America.

President Obama’s Basic Plan:

Enforce existing gun laws, which will require hiring more people and developing new, more efficient technologies.

  • What’s wrong with that?

Closing loopholes that allow unscrupulous people/gun dealers to purchase truckloads of high-powered weapons at gun shows, who sell them to criminals.

  • What’s wrong with that?

One half billion dollars allocated to mental health.

  • What’s wrong with that?

What the opposition fears:

A slippery slope that leads to the government taking away everybody’s guns.

  • Unfounded…

A backlash at the polls if congress supports the President’s rational, conservative approach to decreasing gun crimes in America.

  • Unfounded…

Political candidates losing the financial backing of gun manufacturers who donate funds and votes to their campaigns.

  • Unfounded…

…If everyone agrees now to this sane, conservative approach to reducing gun violence – against humanity – in America.

There is no one stronger than President Obama is – in all of congress, in all of the senate.

When the congress and senate refuse to listen to the needs and the will of the populace, because of their own personal business and political interests, it becomes the duty of the president to act unilaterally in the interest of the populace thus in defense of the nation.

On 1 December 2015, while on the Hannity segment of Fox News Ted Cruz said to Sean Hannity when discussing pro-life vs abortion rights that he (Ted Cruz),

“supports protecting the rights of every human being from conception to natural death as a gift from God”.

Thus Ted Cruz is against the death penalty, since death by the State is not a natural death; it’s murder. And Ted Cruz is a religious man candidate.

BEN CARSON – the flood has been over for a very long time

BENJAMIN SOLOMON CARSON, one of many Republican presidential candidates, recently divulged that he is a Seventh Day Adventist. That’s his religion.

Personally I don’t care what anybody’s religion is as long as that religion doesn’t interfere with my ability to survive and thrive.

But, being that it’s all over the media, and the candidates like to shore up their religious base by making public what most keep private (you know – the ‘don’t wear your religion on your sleeve thing’, purportedly said by Jesus), I can’t help but raise a question or two.

Why isn’t he telling the congregation – the American, and frankly the worldwide, audience – that he doesn’t eat animals?

That’s private, but your religion isn’t? That’s part of your religion. If your religion doesn’t allow the eating of flesh and you don’t eat flesh, except when there’s a flood, then why not say it? The flood has been over for a very long time.

According to Genesis, the first book of the Torah, the initial diet of humanity was a vegan diet:

“I give you all plants that bear seed everywhere on Earth, and every tree bearing fruit which yields seed: they shall be yours for food. All green plants I give for food to the wild animals, to all the birds of heaven, and to all reptiles on Earth, every living creature, it shall be theirs for food.” (Genesis 1:29-31) 

You were named after King Solomon – your middle name – supposedly the wisest man living at the time (nothing was said about the wisest woman). So a wise person would know when the flood was over, especially since it’s been over for so long. Well, the wisest people on earth today don’t eat animals – they’re generally called vegans. They’re from all religions, all walks of life, all genders, all races, all ethnic groups, and many have as their sole religion – veganism – a respect for all beings.

Since the USA government and many popular T. V. personalities refer to all vegans as terrorists, when they clearly are not, how are you going to address this prejudice if you become president?

Veganism is going to be the next major prejudice worldwide. When veganism spreads too wide for the comfort of the animal eaters of the world, there could be a war over it – a World War III. The current slaughter and animal abusing industries are gigantic in size – too big to fail size. But veganism is spreading at an accelerating rate. How will you as president protect the rights of vegans to respect all beings?

Can you see the discrimination already occurring? I can. Can you envision vegans becoming political prisoners? I can. Can you envision the lives of vegans being made living hells by their respective governments of the world? I can.

I know you can see all that too. That’s why you don’t say, the flood has been over for a very long time.

If you say it, it will destroy your chance of becoming president. The slaughter and animal abusing industries will make sure of that. Your religious base, outside of the Adventists, will make sure of that. The NRA and all the hunters of the nation will make sure of that.

Even if you currently eat animals and come up with a Celiac disease excuse, I know that you can see what I see.

Did you know that many animal-free vegans are gluten-free? So there really isn’t an excuse.

The Seventh Day Adventist religion also discourages use of tobacco, alcohol, and other mind-altering substances. Yet, the world doesn’t discriminate against and call terrorists those who indulge.

People who don’t eat animals are discriminated against by family, church and state.

Guess we’ll see if you earned the middle name you were given.

The flood has been over for a very long time – yet we’re still eating animals, and we’re discriminating against people who don’t.

Seventh-day Adventist Diet

Seventh-day Adventists are encouraged to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet. They avoid meat but eat legumes, whole grains, nuts, fruits, and vegetables. According to the Seventh-day Adventist website, “we believe God calls us to care for our bodies, treating them with the respect a divine creation deserves. Gluttony and excess, even of something good, can be detrimental to our health.” Some Seventh-day Adventists are lacto-ova vegetarians (meaning that they eat eggs and dairy foods) and others are vegans (meaning that they eat no animal products at all). The religion also discourages use of tobacco, alcohol, and other mind-altering substances.

Research findings

A multitude of clinical studies have used Seventh-day Adventists as the study population. These studies have proven that most Seventh-day Adventists are healthier than other populations. In general, Seventh-day Adventists have a lower rate of death, a lower rate of obesity, and a lower risk of developing heart disease, certain types of cancers, strokes, and diabetes.

A study of Seventh-day Adventists published in 2000 showed that the 34192 self-identified California Adventists who were followed for 12 years lived, on average, 7.3 extra years for men and 4.42 more years for women, when compared to other non-Hispanic Californians.

Other Seventh-day Adventist diet recommendations

Abstinence from alcohol, coffee, tea, and all other caffeinated beverages is stressed. Lacto-ovo vegetarians need to pay special attention to what they eat to make sure that they get enough iron, zinc, and protein from their diet. Vegans should pay close attention to calcium, vitamin B12, iron, zinc, and protein.

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE

It’s unfortunate that the candidates aren’t allowed to debate each other, when a moderator asks a question. Due to the structure of the debate, the candidates end up debating the moderators. It’s like they’re in a court of law, whereby the lawyers ask the witness the questions on behalf of the jury who will be judging them. Here, the moderators ask the questions on behalf of the audience, and that’s it. If the moderator doesn’t like the answer, they move on.

Folks, this isn’t a court of law. You don’t have permission to examine a hostile witness. But the candidates weren’t hostile to the moderators; it was the other way around. Last night at the Republican Presidential Debate, the moderators were downright mean in the way they asked questions of the candidates. What’s all the anger from the moderators about? It wasn’t professional, and frankly it made me feel uncomfortable.

The moderators need to let each candidate finish their answer. Again and again, the moderators cut off the candidates because their meager time was up. I’d prefer to hear the end of the story, than be slave to a stop watch. What gives here? Are we all still in high school?

Anderson Cooper did the same thing during the Democratic debate – kept cutting people off like he was cutting heads off. You can’t say rules are rules. Who is looking at their watch in order to time their fifteen seconds while they answer the question? No one. Loosen up!!

I felt left up in the air after nearly every unfinished answer. Maybe the moderators should shorten their questions – and take that snide, angry, condescending bitterness out of your tone.

Nearly every time the candidates started debating each other, the moderators shut them down – cold.

We want the candidates debating each other. But it seemed like it was all about the moderators and they getting their views out – and anger! – again, at what?

Better that we have fewer questions and see the candidates actually debate an issue, instead of having to give a rehearsed answer, because the time limit is so short.

The quality of the questions asked was shocking. It was all about character assassination and keeping the American people from hearing the issues. It was tabloid theater at its worst.

What was more shocking is that nobody asked any candidate what they would do about the nuclear waste dumps – a looming and very real nuclear threat in our own country. Just last week Missouri and Nevada were in the news – one leaking and the other one on fire. We have nuclear waste dumps all over the country, and nobody is maintaining them the way they need to be maintained. I can’t be the only one who saw that on the news. Aren’t these debate moderators news people? Either way, don’t they watch the news?

Everybody’s talking about an Iranian nuclear threat that doesn’t exist, while they ignore what’s going on in their own backyard. Shocking. But in fairness they weren’t asked the question. What? The environment was off-limits?

I’m hoping for a better next debate. Frankly, I don’t think that will happen.

This debate made a lot of money for a few people, and the prices of goods advertised just went up due to the high cost of advertising, while banking on you buying their now inflated product. Don’t.

This debate should have been about informing the American people, not making a bunch of money while you got nothing out of it.

P.S. Only one person answered the first question about their personal weakness – Donald Trump. Everybody else had an opening statement they prepared, and since opening statements weren’t allowed, they inserted them under that first ‘personal weakness’ question. DT gave an honest response about his own self. No other candidate did that. Tip of the hat to you Donald Trump.

HILLARY ‘MADE HER BONES’ TONIGHT

Hillary Rodham Clinton, former Secretary of Sate, hit it out of the park, grand slam walk off home run.

I watched the entire hostile examination of a witness, who volunteered to testify.

On 22 October 2015 from 10 AM till 9 PM – 11 hours – grilled like no man has ever been grilled in any court of law, excepting under conditions of torture. Yet this was not supposed to be a prosecutorial endeavor

The hillbillies in suits, all with political agendas, were there en force. It didn’t matter that they were few, what mattered was that their mission was to destroy this woman, and they had the backing of a multitude of like-minded individuals.

They did not do that, they could not do it, because believe it or not, she had just enough hillbilly in her to resist all of their attempts, while providing with facts after facts (not something any one of them could have done) answering every single question they asked – for 11 hours.

The animosity in that kangaroo court was appalling, certainly a bad example to the rest of the world – and trust that the entire world was watching.

Hillary Rodham Clinton stayed focused right till adjournment – again I say no man under the same circumstances could have done it with her deliberateness, her composure while under relentless attack, her knowledge, and her recall of details with every question, that no human being would be expected to recall.

That’s the person I want as President of the United States of America.

Hillary ‘made her bones’ tonight.

Like I say, she has just enough hillbilly in her to take on the whole of Congress.

And every hillbilly in the USA saw what I saw.

Thank you Hillary for your continued service.

~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

Although Hillary was testifying before the House Select Committee regarding the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, in the months preceding the 2012 terrorist attacks that killed four Americans, and the months following the attacks, it wouldn’t have mattered what she was testifying about.

Her demeanor under the pressure of an eleven hour interrogation by aggressive prosecutors with a political agenda, namely to knock her out as a presidential candidate, was a learning example to all people worldwide, women and men alike, on how to conduct themselves and how not to conduct themselves as professionals.

The stark contrast between the unprofessional behavior of her aggressors and her professional response will be studied for years to come. And rightly so.

WORKING LONG HOURS RISKS THE HEALTH OF A NATION

COMMENTARY:

If you cut the work week to forty hours, which is still full-time, the associated health risks reduce significantly, plus to fill the void employers will have to hire more people, which will reduce unemployment. It’s a win-win.

Employers have taken advantage of workers for far too long by requiring them – especially salaried employees – to do the work of two people, even three people. Even though the workers often get paid well, it is a form of forced labor, thus enslavement. Understand that the employer doesn’t pay one employee working the jobs of three employees, what three employees would make combined. There’s a savings in the practice for the employer; that’s why they do it.

Sure, if the employee doesn’t like it, they could find a forty hour a week job. But even then, the job description is such that the employer requires way too much work in a forty hour period – essentially, again, requiring the employee to do the work of more than one person. If they don’t like it, there are lots of other people lining up to take their job. That’s often the reason for call offs. The employee is just too tired. Not to worry though, the other employees pick up the slack till it’s their turn to call off.

The reason why employers say they lose money when people call off is because they don’t hire enough people. They keep forgetting that people aren’t machines. They set their productivity projections way too high, so they can get bigger loans. They don’t take into consideration that people’s bodies and minds break down. ‘So what, we’ll hire somebody else, if they’re too weak’, thus perpetuating the forced labor cycle.

Increased rates of stroke and heart disease associated with working long hours coupled with family discord as a result of Mom and/or Dad rarely being home, and when home distracted by catch-up personal business and chores they need to do, increases costs to health insurance companies that have to pay out on health related claims.

It would be in the interest of these health insurance companies to lobby congress for a shorter work week. Employers are not going to do it on their own, since they’ve enjoyed for such a long time the fruits of forced labor.

It’s obvious that the days of the sweat shop are not over – it’s just that the employees get paid more to sweat. The results are the same, whether it’s in a factory or in a white-collar job. Working long hours, which creates a never-ending stressful condition, is injurious to the worker’s health.

Political candidates need to address workers rights, because the employers won’t do it, and the employee is afraid of losing their livelihood if they do it. Employer recommendations are important to the worker – so in essence there’s a gun to their head that prevents them from raising work-related issues. The health of the nation is at stake here.

Working longer hours increases stroke risk by up to 33%: study – Yahoo Finance.

DEATH PENALTY STRUCK DOWN IN CONNECTICUT

MY COMMENT: Murdering someone who has murdered somebody else is a contradiction in values. It really doesn’t matter if it has deterrent value, or if people are convicted who didn’t commit the crime, or if it satisfies the vengeance desires of family, church or state.

If you pass a law that outlaws murder, then the state murders the person who committed the murder, then the state is essentially saying that murdering people is okay as long as it’s the state doing it. If we aspire to live in civilized societies, then those ruling those societies, or those elected to govern those societies, must set the example of civility.

The USA can’t very well protest the cutting off of heads in the Middle East, when Americans put people to death, in different ways, for similar crimes.

Finding new ways to execute people – after botched attempts using the injection method –  will never be the solution to what drives citizens to murder other citizens. It seems easier to simply kill the person who killed others, than to problem-solve and fix the reasons why people are driven to do what they do.

Politicians and law enforcement prefer to lock somebody up and throw away the key, or kill them if need be, to wipe that problem off the face of the planet. Politicians and law enforcement need to start using their brains instead of their power to destroy, if their goal really is a more peaceful society. Prisons need to be places of rehabilitation and not business enterprises or rape chambers.

Our entire penal system needs to move away from the punishment/vengeance definition of justice and move toward easing non-violent criminals back into society where they have an actual chance of success, and treating violent criminals in new and progressive ways.

Being raped every night as part of every person’s prison sentence, when rape is outlawed outside of prison walls, is a contradiction in values. It doesn’t matter if it has deterrent value, or if people are convicted who didn’t commit the crime, or if it satisfies the vengeance desires of family, church or state.

If you pass a law that outlaws rape, then the state rapes the person who committed a crime, any crime, then the state is essentially saying that raping people is okay as long as it’s the state doing it. If the state can’t keep people inside of locked doors safe, then how can the state say that everybody on the outside is safe?

If societies can’t move away from the barbaric methods of the past, then societies have no hope for a better future. There is a way, many ways. Use your brains to figure that out. Slow down, dump the anger and frustration and your brains will find the solutions that are already there. All you have to do is recognize them.

Overhauling the penal system needs to be a foundation of every political candidate’s platform when running for office – any office.

THE PERFECT CANDIDATE

  • A perfect candidate for a perfect party: a planetarian.
  • A planetarian is someone whose ideological focus is to perfect, thus change, all systems of government, eliminating those no longer relevant and birthing new ones needed for a quickly evolving planet. Like birth, not all evolution occurs at the same pace, but it can be pushed through motivated individuals.
  • A planetarian respects all life and non-life and respects the good facets of all religions and philosophies.
  • A planetarian is fiscally responsible, making decisions that benefit everyone, not just a majority, or cherry-picked minority concerns.
  • A planetarian focuses on problem-solving for everybody in the nation, not only for the few people they may represent. What happens in one city or state affects all the surrounding states.
  • A planetarian brings everybody into the fold and co-exists with those of various ideas, while eliminating the option of war to resolve conflicts.
  • A planetarian doesn’t profit from the suffering of any species, and cares for the planet like one would care for their home, because that’s what it is.
  • A planetarian would rather get along with everyone than fight with anyone, but is nobody’s fool.
  • Neither superiority nor inferiority defines the true planetarian’s heart, but rather respect is the cornerstone of the foundation upon which they build their lives and pursue their dreams and careers.
  • Through the individual planetarian, the group and political party will be formed.
  • Planetarians focus on learning and teaching without prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, the Five Principles to a Better Life, and in instances where individuals lose their way, rehabilitation rather than punishment will be the correction method used.
  • Planetarians are in a perpetual state of transcendental learning, which means they don’t put up road blocks to new or even old knowledge that needs another look.
  • Planetarians use the Five Principles to a Better Life to approach any challenge and solve any problem, opening doors to limitless options within that foundation of hope and confidence. Having compassion for others doesn’t mean feeling sorry for them. It means respecting all life as equally worthy to exist on the planet they inhabit.
  • A true planetarian is all these things and much more.
  • The only true enemy of a planetarian is corruption of it’s foundation.
  • A true planetarian respects the privacy rights of all individuals, whether those individuals want privacy or not.
  • A true planetarian recognizes that freedom doesn’t mean free to harm, free to exploit or free to take from others just because one has that ability.
  • A true planetarian respects the innate rights of all those beyond their borders, and does not enslave, torture and slaughter anybody, any group or any nation for any reason. Nor does it exploit ethnic groups for purpose of profit or any other purpose.
  • A true planetarian raises up, instead of tears down. Strong, healthy, vibrant individuals produce the same qualities in the group.
  • A true planetarian is a vision, an ideal, a party and a purpose.
  • A true planetarian unites the planet in the pursuit of peace and well–being for all.
  • Saying nobody’s perfect, or the world isn’t perfect, as an excuse to stay where you are is not an option for the planetarian.
  • Elections: The winner of any election in any country worldwide is going to have to focus on change. The problem is that some countries don’t have elections, and even in many that do, the corruption is rampant and not addressable by the populace, except through demonstrations which usually lead to violence and imprisonment. During the process of selecting candidates, the key is to decipher who will affect the most change, the type of change that we the people of the planet want and need, based on candidates’ ideological plans for the future and not necessarily on their past accomplishments.  What’s good for the group is code speak for what’s right for the elite of the group or the nation. What we need is what’s good for everybody. If democracy is an equal opportunity employer, there wouldn’t be so many poor people in those democracies. People get rich by paying people below subsistence level wages.
  • If theocracy is God’s plan for all nations, why are there so many people without services in theocracies? What are monarchies the solution to? Nothing. Countries ruled by committee are like countries ruled by monarchies, a small elite group decides what’s right for everybody else. If so good, why so many poor people without services?  The least effective governments are tribal. Everybody but the war lords stays poor and the societies stay underdeveloped.
  • No individual is to sacrifice themselves for the group. If the group needs that type of protection, the group is doing something horribly wrong, and is acting out of synchrony with the needs of all the individuals of the rest of the world. What we need is what’s good for everybody so that nobody gets left out or falls between the cracks as those in power like to call the process of leaving people behind. If nobody gets left out, then there will be no need for terrorists. Everyone will feel respected.
  • When everybody feels respected, they want to be a part of what makes them proud. It’s human nature. A problem arises when the populace wants to follow the leader, promising them streets paved with gold, rather than participate in the process of ruling their own lives.

A TURN ABOUT – REPULSIVE ATTRACTS

One can’t sanitize the garbage that comes out of Donald Trump’s mind by calling it politically incorrect, as Donald himself has claimed it to be. Garbage in, garbage out. So I’m guessing that his so-called politically incorrect speech is his way of clearing out everybody else’s garbage that enters his space – immediately without hesitation, without debate, without any kind of internal consideration he hurls it right back at them – or waits a few hours, then attacks.

And he’s vicious doing it; he’s mean as all get out in comparison to the insult or inaccurate blurb hurled at him in a semi-politically correct manner. And he doesn’t let up. He buries the person in insults. He sees something, hears something that’s inaccurate to his way of thinking, and he jumps in protest – a long, drawn-out protest. Counter-punching he calls it. Problem is, he’s almost always in that mode. Here we go again, Rosie O’Donnell all over again.

Politically incorrect implies gaffes, social type gaffes, that everybody seems to want to avoid like the plague, and for good reason. We’ve all seen how people’s careers and lives get ruined by saying something that is identified as politically incorrect. The vengeance that comes out of the group offended toward the individual who spoke in a politically incorrect way, is just plain vicious. It tears the politically incorrect statement or word an individual uttered, into shreds of human flesh, burning at the pit, devoured by the offended in orgasmic satisfaction. It is repulsive.

But then comes Donald Trump and does a turn about. He’s the one tearing to shreds the ones who usually tear everybody else to shreds via the nightly news and cable news channels. They sit in judgement of everybody else, day after day, night after night; they get it their way, because they not only have the last word, they have every word. There’s no rebuttal by the masses. The opinion of the masses never gets heard – unless it’s through a government agency pretending to be the person on the street, or the person on social media, speaking on behalf of the street.

Well, you know what? Donald Trump is saying what the populace is thinking, and everybody is shocked. Even the government agencies who thought all along that they were getting it ‘right on’ reading the thoughts of  the average American somebody – only to find out they couldn’t have been more wrong. Edward Snowden, NSA whistle-blower, gets it right again. And Donald Trump is getting away with it. And everybody is loving every second of it. They want more. They don’t really care who he insults, just keep doing it.

I don’t believe that’s his strategy; that’s just him. He can’t help himself. And by him not being able to help himself, he is helping everybody else by raising issues, whereby he is the offending person; he is putting himself out there as the offender, so issues that nobody talks about get talked about. Not on purpose. It’s just happening that way. Immigration (rapists and drug dealers coming across the borders), calling out Senator John McCain for exploiting his military service for personal gain – year after year after decade, [then voted for torture] (my insert); using the rape word to describe some immigrants coming across the southern border, then to be accused of rape himself by a previous wife in a divorce proceeding, who then retracted it, but it raised the issue of spousal rape. And everybody talked about it. And now that he’s going at it with journalist, Megyn Kelly, over sexist comments he made to and about women, the sexist word is being bantered about. People are taking a stand, though it might be short-lived, against disparaging comments made toward women by men. It’s front and center in the news.

Donald Trump is again saying what everybody’s thinking, or what people are saying privately away from the camera and microphone. What he says about women, are views that most of the male population hold towards women. The way he talks about women is the way men talk about women, when women aren’t around – and often even when they are.

The other candidates weren’t so offended by his sexist comments; they were more concerned about Trump poisoning the pool of nominees, that could hurt each individual’s chance of becoming that nominee, based on how much the public thought each nominee to mirror Trump’s thoughts. But of course the greater concern is being able to win an election in 2016 with the sexist label pinned on the lapel of the Republican party, even though they are sexist. Being against an equal rights amendment for women, against equal pay for equal work, being against a woman’s right to choose to do what she wants to do with her own body, then taking away the right to purchase birth control pills under certain health insurance policies all add up to sexism.

The Democrats are sexist too, so don’t anybody kid themselves here. Half the human race and most of the female race is sexist toward women. Is that the women’s own fault. No.

I spoke about it for years, everybody laughed, said be a good sport, laugh at yourself, don’t take life so seriously, you create your own problems in life, if somebody doesn’t give you a promotion, it’s because you didn’t fight like a man, or you could get pregnant and need time off, or the most damaging: it makes a woman look weak to be pointing out sexism where sexism breeds.

Sexism is a problem in all people’s lives. But it’s not a problem caused by women or that can be fixed by women. It’s like telling the tortured person to stop their own torture by compliance, but even if the tortured person complies, the torture continues. It is the offender that must change, not the one victimized. Well, consider yourself a victim and sure you’re going to get victimized. They always have a smart answer don’t they? Always a way to blame the person they’re bullying for the reason why they got bullied. Fight back, be like they are. Rosie O’Donnell did that and the fight went on forever. I don’t know who finally won, but Donald Trump got the last word in on the night of the Republican debate just by mentioning her name, and everybody had a big laugh at her expense.

Jeb Bush said that pregnant girls should be publicly shamed for getting pregnant. Here comes that scarlet letter directed only at the ‘evil’ girl for letting herself get pregnant. How about the ‘evil’ boy, that played a greater than fifty-percent role in that pregnancy? No public shaming for him? Herein lies the bias. The prejudice. The sexism. The problem is, I don’t think Jeb Bush was just shooting his mouth off. I think he believes what he said, even though he’ll have to at some point back pedal that thought.

Donald Trump may have a sizzle over substance strategy, and it might work. But the second the populace thinks that he’s playing them, it’ll be over before Trump can open his mind to speak.

Donald Trump keeps saying that he doesn’t have time to be politically correct, but he seems to have an inordinate, endless amount of time to be politically incorrect. Therein lies the contradiction – massive detail regarding every insult, offense, vengeance generated tit for tat, but slow and low on the details of any comprehensive or substantive plan on any issue that concerns Americans.

Build a wall, bomb ISIS, make deals with China, Russia, Mexico, and now he loves women is all I’ve gotten out of all he has said to date. The tit for tat drowns out everything else. The tit for tat is what people remember. And for a while maybe it’s best to address these other issues brought to the forefront by Donald Trump, and to keep them in the forefront. It’s time that women’s rights become a foundation of the platform of both parties – and not just reproduction rights, all rights.

In the afternoon debate, nearly all candidates, maybe all, firmly stated that they would undo every single executive order by President Obama immediately upon taking office. What mind are they pandering to? Obviously not the mind that they thought was the mind of the average Republican American, otherwise they wouldn’t all be so shocked at Donald Trump’s popularity.

All candidates from both parties need to rethink the individual and collective mind of America. Know that they think like you think, not how you speak (except for Donald). Come up with something new for a change. Give a condensed, detailed plan, not a bumper sticker. I think the public is telling the candidates that they have a brain, even though nobody is believing it – yet. They want clarity. They want truth. They’re sick and tired of being lied to and treated as if they’re brainless, and couldn’t figure out anything on their own.

Right now, people think pretty much how I think. After all the talking dust settles, it doesn’t matter who gets into office, or what party wins, they’re all basically the same; the only difference being the temperament of the individual.

Represent the people, not what you think is best for the people, because they’re too dumb to know what you know is in their best interest. How arrogant and self-serving is that?

Make policy plans that will help all Americans soar, not suffer because of your policy mistakes of the past. The one percent may pay for your run, but you can’t win with one percent of the vote.

The smooth talking political candidate isn’t working anymore. Unfortunately, or fortunately, repulsive now attracts. Repulsive raised some issues that are indeed repulsive and need to be worked on in every sector of society. Had someone come forward and just been honest, absent the insults (and everybody is hurling them), I believe the people would have put their energy behind that person. People want raw (and in this case, raw became repulsive), because raw they can at least understand as real, and then they choose to agree or disagree – based on facts, not rhetoric. It is not the candidate’s job to choose for them. That’s exactly what people don’t want.

All you can do as a candidate is to choose to be the best candidate that you can be for ‘we the people’ by thinking like they think, which is like you think! People across the board, are more informed than they’ve ever been. Know that, understand that going forward. Nobody likes being talked down to, so talk up.

Big soul hug to all candidates from all parties from yours truly.
